If one of the resolutions for the new year is to give back more or if you’ve always wanted to do charity but didn’t have the time to search for charities, here are the apps that help you be more charitable.
Many people nowadays take pictures of their meals and Instagram them later. Through the Feedie app, you could make your Instagram food pictures worth something. For every photo shared through Feedie, the restaurants involved in the project will make donations to a non-profit organization called The Lunchbox Fund, which gives children in South Africa free meals.
All you have to do is download the free app, have a Twitter or Facebook account and use the map offered by Feedie to locate the restaurant you’re at. After you’ve shared the photo, an immediate donation will be made to The Lunchbox Fund. The major problem of the app is the low number of participating restaurants. The main restaurants that are collaborating with the app are located in Los Angeles and in New York.
If you like exercising more than putting pictures of the meals you are eating on social media, then the Charity Miles app could be the one that will turn you into the charitable person you’ve always wanted to become. This free app will donate money to the charity of your choice for every mile you make while running, walking or riding your bike. For every mile you walk or run 0,25$ will be donated and 0,10$ for the miles you made with your bike. You’ll be able to choose the charity you want from the 37 participating charities.
In order to begin you’ll need to download the app, install it and create a new account. Before your workout, pick the charity you want, select the activity you’re going to be doing and you can start. Keep in mind that more money will be donated if you are walking or running.
If you don’t fit into any of the two categories mentioned before, then you might like these two apps. The I Can Go Without app and the Instead app focus on the idea that you can give up a certain guilty pleasure like a Starbucks coffee once in a while, and help other people instead. For example, the money you use for your everyday expensive coffee could help the poor children in Sudan have clean water for a whole year. These apps have quickly became extremely efficient for charity found raising.
Other apps that help you be more charitable include Charity Tap, Give 2 Charity, One Today and Check-in for Good.
